First off, let me say how much I love this photo! Well done indeed.
I appreciate how the color is more on the violet side of the color wheel, it gives the mood a very mystifying feel.
At first, I felt a certain imbalance because the tree all the way on the left side was cut off at the bottom by the side of the frame; however, I noticed that the tree on the right is also cut off by the frame, which evens out the photo.
It seems to me that the branches in the middle top of the photo might have been sharpened on Photoshop or a program like that? The branches could be softened a bit to draw less attention to the darker areas of them, focusing the viewers' eyes more towards the path itself.
Overall, very nice photo. I have seen photos like this before, but this one was executed very nicely.
What do you think?

When I saw this piece it had alot of impact on me instantly. It's been brillantly captured to the point where it's touched me dramatically. It's really simple, yet I think it took quite some time making this. I love how the scene slowly turns more hazy; It's really gives a winter-like feel, as well does the gray and warm-purple colour scheme. The fogs in the middle of the forest are somehow mysterious - the whole forest seems to be surreal. The cold colors create a distance, but at the same time this distance is impressive. As the observer, you seek new details - and you find them.
Great job. Epic, as some have called it. I think this picture shows that you are a talented artist and you see details.

Would I be too terribly imposing by requesting to make a colour palette of this lovely piece? (With all the proper credit, of course!)
